Information request issued: AI risk mitigation

On Monday 3 June, TEQSA issued a request for information (RFI) to all registered higher education providers. The RFI asks providers for a credible action plan, oversighted by the appropriate governance mechanisms, to address the risk generative artificial intelligence (gen AI) poses to award integrity.

TEQSA is closely monitoring the rapid enhancement of gen AI tools, and what they mean for teaching, learning and assessment practices. The RFI looks to ensure institutions are meaningfully reflecting on the risks of gen AI. It will also enable TEQSA to share interesting or innovative approaches, with the provider’s permission, to benefit the sector as a whole.

Providers were advised, in a letter from our Chief Commissioner, of TEQSA’s intention to issue a RFI in October 2023 and in March 2024 TEQSA held a webinar to answer providers’ questions. TEQSA also held a webinar for professional accreditation organisations in March 2024, in recognition of our shared interest in ensuring award integrity.

Resources to support providers in responding to the RFI are available on TEQSA’s dedicated webpage, Request for information: Addressing the risk of artificial intelligence, including key considerations, frequently asked questions and a video of the provider webinar.

Providers are asked to respond to the RFI in July 2024.

Providers are also welcome to direct questions to the Higher Education Integrity Unit by email:
